Capitol Hill Scare: Female Suspect Shot Dead, 1-Year-Old Rescued, Injured Officer Recovering

capitol hill shooting car chase police press conference secret service police

Many details are still unknown about this afternoon's terrifying car chase in our nation's capital, but police are now confirming that the female suspect was shot dead by police.

D.C. Police and federal law enforcement agents — the ones that weren't furloughed, at least — spoke at length in a (second) late afternoon briefing, and while they're reluctant to release many details on the suspect they have said they pronounced her dead.

Metro PD's representative revealed:

"The suspect was struck by gunfire and was pronounced [dead]… [We] dont know which officers fired… but they did exactly what they were supposed to do and stopped the suspect from breaching the perimeters."

Thankfully, though, a one-year-old child was rescued from the suspect's vehicle and is currently doing OK.

A rep from the U.S. Capitol Police said:

"There was a one year old child in the car, one of our officers initially rescued the child and took him to medical care in the vicinity, and the child was taken to the hospital."

Wow, we're so thankful the kid is OK!

Likewise, we learned the officer injured during the car chase is doing fine, too!

The rep continued:

"The officer is doing well, a 23 year veteran of the U.S. Capitol Police… He was at thehospital when I spoke with him, but he’s gonna be fine."

Other than that, we haven't learned too many details.

Again, earlier today a woman tried to drive her car through a security checkpoint at the White House, and that's when all this unfolded.

Police also say terrorism has been all but ruled out at this point.

UPDATE: Multiple sources say the vehicle was registered to Miriam Carey of Connecticut, and that law enforcement believes she was the driver.

She did not have a gun, according to those sources, but she used her car as a weapon.

    Re: Bongo – Are u that stupid?They killed her because she used her car to run over a secret service agent. They killed her because she wound't listen to police officers and stop or get out of the car. They killer her because she drove 85 miles per in hour in Washington dc ramming into a police car and injuring a 2nd officer of the law. They killed her because she tried to get in a secure area where the president, senators and other government are. They killer her because just 3 weeks ago a gun men killed 12 people.

    Glad the child and police officer are OK. Don't know much about the story, read a little earlier on Yahoo but they did not have too many details either.

    Re: shaygirl1309 – The name Mariam Carey suggests that she is not muslim and therefore not from somalia, which is a muslim country. If you're going to be racist, the least you could do is be informed.

    Re: thelmalouise – Shooting to kill though, was it really necessary. It's not looking too good in the world press, they all seem to be picking up on the lack of need to have killed her. Not saying it's just Americans that have trigger happy moments, we all do, but this is one of them.
